He pointed that the government of Pakistan will be of the key participant in the Expo 2020 as hundreds of Pakistani firms will get opportunities to highlight Pakistani products through this massive platform.
Hans lauded the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and said that the government has achieved milestones in every sector especially created an environment which is favourable for expatriates from over 200 countries living in the country.
